Across the bridge Puente Castro dated to the 13th century over the river Esla, you finally reach León. In León you will have the opportunity to visit this stunning city, above all the Cathedral, the Basilica de San Isidoro, the Hostal San Marcos (nowadays a Parador) or the Casa de los Botines de Gaudí.
León to Villadangos del Páramo, (22Km)
On leaving Leon you head towards the village La Virgen del Camino, where you have two options. One passes through Villadangos del Páramo and the other one through Mazarife. Both variants are nice but the route through Villar de Mazarife is not really well marked.
